Talking Bikes Has Never Been This Social: #bikeschool



It’s been a while, but I was happy to be hosting #bikeschool once again last Thursday night on Twitter.  Now that the weekly cycling chat pretty much runs itself (mostly due to our #bikeschool guardian angel, @twittyboyd), I don’t get all that involved with it or even attend every week.  But when I do drop in and put on the Professor hat, I get to feel that incredible rush that only #bikeschool can bring.

During last week’s chat, I was able to sway over one of my twitter followers who had never heard of #bikeschool before.  Kit Harvey and I worked together when I acted as cycling editor for The Roar last year.  He was my favorite writer, and was always there when I needed him.

Upon his quick introduction to #bikeschool, he tweeted what I have posted above.  In a way that only a great writer can do, he captured the essence of what our chat is all about.  #bikeschool is a place where #WorldCyclistsUnite and can interact and be social with like-minded people.

I am very, very proud to be one of the people who brought #bikeschool to life….and even more proud of where our bicycle community has taken it.


Enjoy Your Ride

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.


Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
